Tonight on UKNY at 11, new singles from emerging British bands like Wolf Alice, Totem, East India Youth and The Proper Ornaments.
The Commonwealth Cut sticks around in Toronto for a second week for the "supergroup" Breeze and since two talented women named Laura are headed to New York for shows in the next week or so, we'll also hear from Laura Mvula and Laura Marling.
Join me for UKNY Saturday nights at 11 following Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"® and Marshall Crenshaw's "The Bottomless Pit" on 90.7 WFUV, also streaming online.
